How the Online Education System Helps the Students

Much of president’s Obama’s past and present election platform has been based on the importance of the importance of the education system and how it was the key for the US to rise as the undisputed world leader that it was. And you may or may not have rooted for him but the importance of getting a good quality education and the accreditation that goes along with it is an undisputed and very powerful way of coming to personal gain. And getting that education in an online environment has many advantages, from lower costs to gaining access to a series of high quality specialized programs, so many students might actually prefer this type of studies to any other.

Obviously the most important reason why a prospective student would look at an online option for their studies is that these kinds of studies are usually much cheaper than real classes. In the first place it is cheaper on the school itself so it is only natural that they should ask for smaller tuition fees. However there are certain online classes that provide some extraordinary value and they are aware of it so they may actually be as expensive as some off line classes but even then they should be cheaper than the off line version of that specific class.

Besides the advantages that online classes have for the schools there are certain advantages for the students too like the fact that for most classes you can choose your own studying times and there are very few classes that require all students to be online at the same time so that they can participate in debates. And even in those situations there are always advantages to being able to study from home like the fact that you don’t have to spend any money on the commute, you can always go in the kitchen and pick up something if you’re hungry and it can be so much more comfortable to keep your pajamas on in the morning.

And besides what you might call comfort factors there is always the advantage that studying from home allows you to do other mandatory activities. Like new parents that have to be there for their children at all times but who do have the time to learn to get a better certification and, when they come to it, they can go back to work for a bigger pay grade. And there are many more situations where you have to be in certain places for long periods of time but you still have a few hours to spare to better yourself.

And last is the fact that there are certain specialized classes that are not available anywhere but in an online environment. That is because, even in the biggest cities, there may not be enough people interested in taking a certain class but across the world there will certainly be a group that at one given time will be interested in studying a specific class and online is the only place where they can all meet and study that particular subject.

    Good points Joye! I like the idea of learning on my own so online schools make so much sense to me! I hadn’t considered that more classes would be available there because the class minimums could be met in an online forum! Pretty cool world we live in!


    “there are very few classes that require all students to be online at the same time so that they can participate in debates” this is a problem. Learning g is often a social event and synchronous, meaningful interaction between and among students enhances the learning. ….otherwise get a book.

    In the second paragraph above, you talk about “online classes versus real classes.” That may be a slip of the tongue but it is a dangerous stereotype. Strong educational experiences CAN be delivered online.
